Congratulations Jeff and Jessica

This evening wedding featuring the color of turquoise was so pretty.  The Ceremony took place under a huge oak tree with a large chandelier hanging from it.  Turquoise and white lanterns lined the aisle and turquoise and white umbrellas accented the last row of chairs.  The Reception matched the colors as well, as the tables had white cloths and were surrounded by white garden chairs.  The centerpieces consisted of white lanterns atop turquoise fabric.  Each table also had a framed picture of Jessica and Jeff and a vase with orange and yellow flowers.  The Bridal Party wore
turquoise dresses and carried bouquets of yellow and orange flowers while the Groomsmen wore white shirts, suspenders and blue ties.

Jessica’s cake matched the colors of the day with its three white stacked tiers accented by orange and yellow flowers.  Since both Jeff and Jessica work at NASA, Jeff’s funfetti flavored Groom’s cake featured the NASA “meatball” logo on the top.  Their favors also matched the wedding colors, as they were individual packets of tea, wrapped in turquoise covers stating “Love is Brewing.” 

After an elegant and fun evening, the night came to a close with everyone joining in the Last Dance.  The Newlyweds then ran through sparklers before climbing into a fully restored classic yellow Thunderbird and heading off to their new life together.  Congratulations Jeff and Jessica!

Congratulations Tim and Meredith

This pretty spring day brought us to a beautiful, and fun, wedding Reception.  The colors for the day were coral and seafoam, and they were carried out perfectly.  The tables had ivory floor-length linens with coral pin tuck toppers.  The centerpieces alternated between tall vases of ivory hydrangea and coral roses or low seafoam colored lanterns.  Candles surrounded the centerpieces and accented all the windows.  The Bridal Party wore seafoam floor-length gowns and carried bouquets of ivory hydrangeas and coral roses while the Groomsmen wore seafoam vests and ties. 

Meredith’s three-tiered white, stacked wedding cake matched the colors of the day as well, as it had coral roses accenting the tiers and making up the topper.  Tim’s chocolate Groom’s cake was cool: it was an orange tool chest with tools lying around it.  Instead of a traditional guestbook, the Newlyweds had large wooden “M & T” initials for the guests to sign.  Meredith and Tim will later hang them on the wall of their home.  We also did the Anniversary Dance at this Reception, with the longest married couple being married 52 years.

After a fun evening of dancing, the night came to a close with the Last Dance.  Afterwards, the Newlyweds made their exit through a shower of bubbles before heading off to their new life together.  Congratulations Tim and Meredith!

Congratulations Topher and Rachael

This Reception was special to us, as we’ve known the bride personally for the past year, so it was an honor to be a part of her wedding day.  The colors for the wedding were ivory, dark red, blush and gold, and they all came together perfectly.  The tables had ivory floor-length table cloths with overlays of beige lace and were surrounded by gold Chiavari chairs.  Each place setting had a gold charger and ivory napkin with a gold napkin ring.  The centerpieces alternated between three styles: a tall, gold candelabra with ivory candles; a tall vase filled with pearls and topped with ivory hydrangeas and red roses; and lower arrangements of ivory hydrangeas and red roses.  To add a beautiful glow to the reception, we had amber Uplights placed around the room. 

The cakes were perfect for this country-themed wedding.  Rachel’s cake had three white stacked tiers, all with natural style  

frosting. The tiers were accented with dark red roses, which also made up the topper. Topher’s chocolate cake was a nod to his love for hunting, as it was decorated to look like a duck pond.  Both cakes were on gold pedestals.

There were some great details at this wedding to tie in with the theme.  There were koozies at the bar with the state of Texas on them.  The sign-in book was actually two painted boards, one with the state of Texas on it and the other with the couple’s last name.  The guests signed them in gold and silver markers and later the Newlyweds will hang then in their home. 

After a night of great food, great drinks, and lots of Country dancing, the night came to an end when the Newlyweds ran through a shower of rose petals and headed off in a horse-drawn carriage.  Congratulations Topher and Rachael!
